We are totally “All hands on Deck” for this link! The Fans were all stoked to learn that old junk (Brandon would eventually be bumped up to pro this season, but now he is linked with this powerhouse R&B singer, who we just can’t contain our excitement. Expect much of the energy of this duo, as Tinashe already has a lot of dance experience under her belt. Growing up, she trained in various styles such as ballet, tap and jazz.

Bobby Bones and Sharna Burgess

He has been entertaining fans for years as an on-air radio personality on the basis of Nashville, Tennessee, but his skills resonate in the ballroom? Because Sharna, surprisingly enough, has yet to win a mirrorball fans of the trust on The Bobby Bones Show host to help her get her hands on the coveted trophy. We are all rooting for you, Bobby!

Of Bachelor in Paradise to the ballroom, and the banana hands jazz hands! We can only hope that this reality star has been practising his dance moves in the supermarket aisles, because he has a lot to comply. He is associated with last season, the reigning mirrorball champ, Jenna, who excited the crowd, week after week for the amazing choreography they created for the Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon.

Mary Lou Retton and Sasha Farber

It is a other gymnast for Sasha! The dance pro finished fourth in the season 24 with Simone Biles, but he can still later with Mary, who was the first American woman to win the all-around gold medal at the Olympic games in 1984? She has since retired from gymnastics, but we know that fierce factor to go for the gold (well, technically silver, in this case) is still in her soul.

‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 27 Pros Revealed — and One Power Pair is Missing!

DeMarcus Ware and Lindsay Arnold

We know that he can racking up the quarterback sacks, but can @DeMarcusWare tackle the foxtrot? With @lindsayarnold as his partner, our guess is yes! #DancingOnGMA #DWTS pic.twitter.com/WCyom1Vrfg

NFL players have done remarkably well in recent seasons — with athletes such as Rashad Jennings, Emmitt Smith and Hines Ward to go home with the grand prize! and we have no doubt that this former outside linebacker and defensive end who played with the Dallas Cowboys and the Denver Broncos have less luck. Plus, he is in good hands with Lindsay. She won her first mirrorball in season 25 with Jordan Fisher placed third with another NFL star, Calvin Johnson, Jr., two prior seasons.

Juan Pablo di Pace and Cheryl Burke

He is an actor, singer and director… but now this Fuller Home star can add “dancer” to his resume. Interestingly enough, he portrayed Petros in the 2008 film version of Mamma Mia!, so we have our fingers crossed that his pro partner choreograph a routine to a medley of songs from the hit rom-com. After all, Cheryl is perhaps the “Dancing Queen.”

John Schneider and Emma Slater

Yeeeee-Haaa! Best known for his portrayal of Beauregard “Bo” Duke in the action-comedy TV series “The Dukes of Hazzard, you know we are going to be in for a real treat with this actor, nice personality. On top of that, Emma loves to have fun with costumes, so we have a good feeling that we will see her in a pair of Daisy Dukes on a certain point on the canal, and the signature high-cut jean shorts made famous by actress Catherine Bach, who played the role of Bo’s cousin on the series.

‘Dancing With the Stars: Juniors’: Meet the Young Dance Professionals and Their Ballroom Mentors!

Nikki Glaser and Gleb Savchenko

Brace yourself for lots of laughter between the duo. Although Gleb usually takes rehearsals seriously, we already know that he is not able to keep a straight face when teaching this comedian how to dance. In addition to Nikki’s stand-up work, she is also a podcast and a TELEVISION presenter with appearances on networks such as Comedy Central and Much more.

Alexis Ren, and Alan the Bottles

If everyone is providing sneak peeks of their rehearsals of this season, it will definitely get this all-star team. Alexis is a model and internet celebrity, who currently has 12.7 million followers on Instagram. She has no problem showing off for the ‘gram, but she is ready to strut her stuff in real life? Guess we find out soon!

Everyone loves a heartwarming story about DWTS, and this season will come from Danelle, an American alpine skier and a paralympian. At only 13 years old, she was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, a hereditary eye condition that resulted in total blindness. She started blind skiing in 2000 after the introduction to the sport by her father. It was by blind skiing that she met her husband, Rob, whom she credits as her “best friend, the father of my child, and my eyes on-and off-piste,” according to NBC.

Evanna Lynch and Keo Motsepe

The rumors are true! The actress, who portrayed the beloved Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter film series, has joined the show after all, and we have no doubt that she and Keo will be their magic on the dance floor. We have the feeling that these two have what it takes to go quite far in the competition.

Next Wednesday is the full cast reveal, GMA previously announced, two couples: Disney Channel star Milo Manheim with Witney Carson, and The Facts of Life star Nancy McKeon with Val Chmerkovskiy.
